[URGENT] Do we have Okta Login API available for SAML

Hello Everyone,

I am implementing SAML login using salesforce. Do we have any way to login into OKTA using api’s or something where on an unauthenticated page I can just add login username and Password and I verify the okta creds using any integration and then I get a login URL.

Thanks,

Okta has Authentication API which you can use to validate username/password captured from user

Could u provide me a link that would be very Helpful…Do I get a login link as well to login if the creds are verified
